Themes in summary:

  • - Global and Regional Atmospheric
  • - Convective Scale
  • - Atmospheric Constituent
  • - Coupled
  • - Global and Regional Ocean
  • - Assimilation of Observations to Represent the Land Surface Evolution

Program

With the aim to gather presentations that represent the most innovative ideas and developments in data assimilation, and also with the aim to offer opportunities to early career scientists and scientists from less developed countries, a set up of equal length oral presentations has been chosen from the submitted abstracts. The Symposium program consists of seventy-five 20' talks and one-hundred-fifty posters that represent the state of the art in data assimilation methodologies and applications. A plenary session is organized on the last day of the Symposium to provide a summary of the main achievements shown in this field and suggestions for further investigations and opportunities for improvements.

Getting to Florianópolis

By Air

Florianopolis has its own airport, Hercilio Luz Airport, located on the island. All major Brazilian airlines fly to Florianopolis. If you are flying from outside of the country, it is likely that you will have to make a connection, probably in Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro. Make sure when you are booking your flight that your connecting flight to Floripa leaves from the same airport as your arriving flight, as both cities have more than one major airport, and transfering between them can be a great hassle. GOL airlines is a cut-rate airline company similar to Ryanair and EasyJet that flies to Florianopolis.

The best way to get from the airport to your hotel is by taxi. Taxi drivers in Florianopolis are honest and reliable. The ride from the airport into town costs about R$60 ($30 USD). There is also frequent local bus service to the downtown terminal via green busses marked "183 Corredor Sudoeste." Take those marked "Directo" with a placard in the window to avoid most intermediate stops in either direction. The fare is R$2.70 or about $1.25 USD.

By Bus

Overnight buses are available to travel to Florianopolis from both Rio and Sau Paulo. The trip takes about ten hours from Sao Paulo, and eighteen from Rio. You can pay a little more to upgrade to a sleeper bus, which is more comfortable. From Sao Paulo, a standard bus costs around R$70, and a sleeper bus costs about R$120. From Rio the cost is about R$142.

Travel Grants

Junior scholars, senior graduate students and scholars from low-income countries are encouraged to apply to travel assistance before May 10th, 2017. Please, after submitting your abstract, send an email to das2017@inpe.br with the subject “Travel Grant Request”, along with a short CV, one paragraph stating your current research and a letter of reference.

Award decisions will be announced in mid-June.

Please Note: You are not required to Register for the Symposium to apply for a travel grant but an abstract has to be submitted before apply. If you receive a grant you will be required to register for the Symposium by our September 1st, 2017 registration deadline.

*Travel grants are subject to funding availability.
